    Well to be honest the economy in Brazil is uprising, but still how can you wreck such nice racing cars.

    Even if there is no longer a domestic series to race in they can be very useful for other (club) events.

    Would love to have such a car to race in.

    It's our stupid laws. Brazil have a very restricted law for car importation. Basically, we can only buy brand new car with no factory alterations. No used or tuned car.
    Race car are not street homologated, so we can bring it here for a period of time (I think max 3 or 5 years).

    So those Minis should go outside of Brazil to return with a new importation contract. So I think BMW thought it was too expensive to return the cars and have it to the government to do what we see in the movie.

    That's why Brazilian GT goes to a round in Argentina. I think Stockcar don't have this problem because the cars are made here (i think).

    They should shipped to the Nordschliefe so we could run the 24 hour race for real! Pretty sure they would all be scrap after that anyway :laugh:

    Like Adriana said, I couldn't see the whole video too.

    Just to know, to import car in Brazil it's you have to pay almost tree times more just in tax.

    For God sake let them export those cars then. Obviously they now go away for dump prizes and for the same amount I would have loved to import such a car to Europe with a container.

    There must be easier and better ways to get rid of old cars then just demolishing them. Pure horror.
